Northwest Denver was originally home to the Southern Cheyenne, Arapahoe, Shoshone, and Ute tribes who settled along the Platte River. Next came immigrant groups including Italians, Germans, and Irish in the early 20th Century. In the 1920s, Mexican and Latin-American immigrants called Northwest Denver their home. And since 2000, this affordable, working-class neighborhood has continued to gentrify. Learn more about how that’s affecting the people who have called Northwest Denver their home for generations and what Habitat Metro Denver is doing to help.
Habitat Metro Denver's CEO, Heather Lafferty, will moderate this 45-minute conversation before facilitating a short audience Q&A.
